Reading other travel blogs is my favourite way to research our travels and find up to date information not available in the guidebooks. These are the blogs we have found useful for travelling around Latin America.
We’ve made no secret that Audrey and Dan are two of our favourite travel bloggers. They have just finished travelling around Central and South America for more than a year, and as always their writing is thoughtful as well as useful, and their photos are stunning. They share some of their travel tips in our interview with them.

The Future is Red
Leigh and her family have settled down for a few years in Salta, Argentina, where we had the pleasure of staying with them. This isn’t your typical travel blog but you’ll find tips on Argentina and Panama, where they also lived.

Tourist to Townie
Gareth spent ten months in Buenos Aires with the aim of really getting to know the city and becoming part of the community. He also travelled around the Salta area, where we met him.
Viajar Sin Rumbo
We met Adam in Rio, and while his blog isn’t very well known his insightful writing and beautiful photography deserve to be seen by many more. He spent seven months travelling through South America, and his posts about Colombia have made us desperate to visit.
A favourite post: Always Talk to Strangers
Bacon is Magic
Ayngelina has been travelling for six months so far, from Mexico, through Central America and is now heading down the continent to Argentina. We love her focus on food and her positive attitude to setbacks like getting mugged.

Unpaved South America
Here you’ll find tips for getting off the beaten track in South America.
I enjoy this article. Thanks for posting tips about these places.
I’m glad I found this list. This is very helpful and I love the pictures as well.
Very interesting blogs, I enjoyed it!
Great list! Preparing for a solo trip to South America in a month and have found some good tips and inspiration in these.
Congratulations on your wonderful blog! I mentioned this post in my blog, woman2womenblog.com, in this article http://wp.me/p508D7-hI
Thank you very much and keep going with your never ending voyage!
Just discovered this post for some great blog recommendations. Hopefully some of them will cover Patagonia and the south of Argentina!
Great post and very helpful list of blogs,
My Girlfriend and I are heading to South America soon – you can follow our progress, as well as tips and reviews on:
very helpful page. I’m heading to central america and I’m starting doing a little research about it. thanks… greetings from MOROCCO!
Hello! I wanted to know if you’d be updating your page anytime soon – I am an American expat living in Chile who has been writing detailed guides about the country and other travel destinations in South America – http://www.biancarods.com
Let me know if you can include my website as well!
How about also: http://www.stephandben.com. They spent a year in Argentina, motorcycling, hiking and living in Buenos Aires. Fascinating account.
Awesome list! It basically lets an amateur traveler like me know which are the best places to go, and getting it from an experienced adventurer is a good thing. Thanks for sharing!
I’m way late to the party — thanks for the mentions, and regards from Peru. :)
Great website. I like Freedom 29 (www.freedom-29.blogspot.com)which I found through legal nomads link. Also like Uncorned Market and Legal Nomads, obviously.
Thanks for the recommendation James – I hadn’t heard of that one.
I spent 7 weeks in Buenos Aires and will be in Chile until December, then in January-March, will be in Colombia, Brazil and Peru, before returning to Chile (or maybe staying in Peru). I take plenty of weekend trips and adventures and really enjoy blogging about them!
Great list. Plenty to check out. I love Adam’s picture of that little town Guatapé. It’s definitely on my list now that I’m in Colombia :) Thanks!
Great list of travel blog , i ll start following these blog
I have been always fascinated towards the bloggers you have listed, Audrey and Dan they are on top of the list of my favorite bloggers. through your interview I got to know many things about them, thanks.
This list has some of my fave bloggers as well, yay! :)
great list, i like it.
I love Andi Perullo’s blog My Beautiful Adventures. She travels to other places in the world, but 80% of her travel is to South America where her true hear lies. Always great photos to accompany her adventures. http://mybeautifuladventures.com/
Thanks so much for including Travelojos on your list. I’m working on publishing a free e-book due out in mid-November that will feature the work of some of my favorite Latin America travel bloggers.
Here is the list of contributors to the project:
Among them is Ayngelina from the superbly named “Bacon is Magic”
I’m looking forward to the ebook, and thanks for highlighting some more great bloggers from the area.
You guys are so kind. I love this blog and there are a few here that I didn’t know and definitely want to catch up on.
No problem Ayngelina! Glad you found some more here.
A great list – some current favourites but a couple of new ones in there too. And that Gringo Starr site – just wonderful ;o)
Well, of course =)
Awesome list!! Some I know, some I don’t. I look forward to reading more and getting to know these bloggers!!
I have traveled extensively throughout South America.. my blog has a ton of S. Am info.. is that tooting my own horn??
Haha. Thanks for making this list!
No problem with self promotion here! We are always on the look out for more sites – I’ll check it out.
This is a great list I keep up with regularly!!
And of course there’s your blog too!
Looks like I’ll be descending on Latin America just a bit too late to meet everyone. Thank goodness there are other places to meet up. Hopefully I can make this list in the future.
And to the point – a great list! I read almost all of these blogs regularly.
I almost included you on the list taking into account your future plans! At least you’ll get to meet Leigh & Noah in Salta. You’ll love it! Hopefully we’ll meet you soon. Maybe Vancouver?
Like Leigh, I feel fortunate that we’ve met a few of these bloggers in person. Now we just need to figure out a way for our paths to cross!
Thanks so much for including us on this list and we’re really glad our pieces on Latin America were useful!
Your blog is my first port of call when planning the next country to visit, and your writing gives us something to aspire to. I really do hope we cross paths one day – hopefully in Vancouver, although I know your plans are as up in the air as ours!
It’s an honor to be listed among all these awesome people, thank you very much.
Hopefully we’ll run into each other again on the next adventure… Colombia?
Yeah, definitely Colombia! We are hoping to get there by Christmas too.
Thanks so much for including us in your list.
Noah and I were just talking last night how much we miss you guys. It was so great having you here.
And it looks like we’ve had a good number of these bloggers stay with us in Salta. Now it’s my mission to have the rest here, too.
Hope you’re loving Bolivia.
We miss you guys too! We are currently in Sucre, which is strangely similar to Salta =) Thanks for being such amazing hosts!
